A busy day on a couple hours sleep is, gruelling, but today was actually a blast. Writing wise, I had a super cool idea for some foreshadowing and ran with it for about 600 words of target today, and I’m gradually starting to feel like my confidence in my writing is returning. Yeah it needs more sensory work but if I work better adding that in the rewrite – which admittedly waits to be seen – then so much the better. I also managed to sell a couple of cards I wasn’t using today to pay off my headphones and put aside money for my mortgage savings, so things are starting to feel ordered and, well, safe. I feel like I might actually be ok. It’s a nice feeling. I hope it lasts this time.

I’m Sam, and I live to write. I spent most of the last 10 years trying to balance writing with a large amount of crap in my personal life, until towards the end of 2018 I threw everything out and started afresh with just my writing. I built the new me around one goal: I have to write at least 1,000 words a day. I called this goal 1K, and it changed my life. My greatest flaws as a writer is I still use too many adjectives, adverbs, connectives as openers, accidental passive voice and I don't force my work down people's throats enough on pain of extreme and unusual torture. My greatest strength is I know my greatest flaws and I'm working on them. View all posts by Sam Shuttleworth
